Call to action

EDBellis(v2)

(Omaha, NE) Sean McGuire, host of Radio’s most listened to show on the Affordable Care Act, America’s Healthcare Challenge stated:

“State legislatures all across the United States pushing immediate repeal of the Affordable Care Act are wasting their time.  They should be focusing on innovative solutions at the state level to cover more un-insured at lower cost by 2017 instead.”

Oklahoma and others are pushing to block pieces of the Obama healthcare law but instead of expending political capital fighting the ACA, they should be focusing on state based solutions that make more sense than federal bill.  The challenge is the complexity of the healthcare system, which if not addressed, will strain the nations finances.  Soon millions of new American’s will receive tax payer subsidies to purchase a product that has been growing at a faster trajectory than inflation and wages since the 1970’s.

Here is why state innovation is paramount.
